pollo Got a LG 27GL83A a few days ago. First thing I noticed was the horrible IPS Glow the LG has, especially in the lower left corner, never noticed it on my other IPS screens. I am trying to get used to it and notice it less now. The colors are less saturated and the contrast is worse imo. The latter seems to be the main weakness of the LG panels.

What the LG does exceptionally well is smoothness. The monitor is really fast and gaming is so fun on this thing. I limited the refresh rate to 120 Hz and tried it out side by side with the QNIX at 120 Hz. Especially fps like Quake are a blast on the LG. In contrast, the QNIX is considerably slower than the LG and has ghosting. The QNIX isn't bad if you haven't tried anything faster, but gaming on the LG is similar to playing on a fast TN panel to me.

In conclusion, contrast and IPS glow are really bad on the LG. Colors are alright and responsiveness and overall speed are really good. I'd only get it, if you are mainly playing games on your computer. Monitors with an Innolux panel (e.g. Pixio PX7) might be better allrounders, haven't tried them though.

Kokin My QX2710 pcb finally died after 6 years of 120Hz. It's been a good run and if anyone is interested in the functional 120Hz panel and lives in the Bay Area in Cali, send me a PM!

I have an old qnix QX2710 evolution ii. I am looking at getting a new HDR 1440p monitor, for example the asus tuf vg27aq. Does the qx2710 still stack up to todays monitors? Looking at the specs theyre very similar. And the evo has 10 bit unlike the asus, and 50 lower nits.
More modern IPS panels should be a lot faster in response time (3-5ms average) and will support variable refresh rate via Freesync and/or GSync. You should also expect a wider color gamut, higher peak brightness and support for curved panels.

If you want something different and more immersive than a 27" 1440p monitor, I would suggest looking at 34" Ultrawide monitors. I love my AW3418DW Ultrawide (3440x1440 120Hz IPS) and will look to swap it with my wife's LG 34UC88 as a secondary monitor if I end up buying either one of the upcoming LG 38GN950 or 38GN95C later this year.

pollo Still using a QNIX at 120 Hz and interested in this as well. From my what I know, the current monitors mainly have less ghosting than the old Korean ones, but colors, contrast and overall screen quality should be very similar.

Soupie Hi I'm having problems.

I have the drivers installed for my AMD RX 580

I used the patcher and CRU to OC to 96Hz

I restarted my computer > windows monitor settings > Screen refresh rate >

But it only shows 64 hz

Nothing else.

And for some reason, using the Patcher deletes my Drivers? When I try opening AMD control panel it says I need to install drivers.




EDIT: RIOT VANGUARD IS THE PROBLEM.

Sluggi Hello,

I accidentally pulled one of the wires out of the 6-pin connector to the panel for the LED backlight. Does anyone know where I can purchase a replacement cable? The cable has a different 6-pin connector on each end, for connecting to the panel and the circuit board.

Soupie Hey guys, I OC'd mine to 96 and I wanted to use another monitor as well at 60 or 75hz. I have a AMD RX 580.

Will I encounter the problem of my refresh rate being limited by my slower monitor (60/75 hz)?

I play league of legends and sometimes stream to my friends and wanted to have OBS/Chat open on the 2nd monitor while playing on the Qnix

I have teh X-star and all it has is a DVI port/Power/Headphone Jack.
Check out this calculator :

https://k.kramerav.com/support/bwcalculator.asp

The QNIX at 96hz needs 10.6 Gbps bandwidth.

HDMI 1.4 has a maximum throughput of 10.2 Gbps, whereas HDMI 2.0 has 18 Gbps.

So as long as you are using equipment / a conversion cable that supports those numbers, you should be fine.
